BOSTON, Mass. - Feb. 5 - Southern Utah's Cameron Levins raced at the international level at the New Balance Grand Prix on Saturday, earning an eighth-place world ranking with a fifth-place finish in the 3,000-meter run.

"It's awesome," Levins said in a Flotrack interview. "It's so cool going to Nationals in such a good position. It makes me feel really confident."

Levins' 7:45.75 finish shaved about three seconds off his previous top NCAA record of 7:48.25, also setting a new school record for Southern Utah. 

Levins was the first non-African athlete to finish, racing behind runners like Dejen Gebremeskel of Ethiopia and Silas Kiplagat of Kenya. He finished ahead of U.S. athlete Matthew Centrowitz, who earned a bronze medal in the 1,500-meters at the 2011 IAAF World Championship.

Levins will continue to compete with the T-Birds in the indoor season, preparing for the Summit League Championship and NCAA Nationals.

The New Balance Indoor Grand Prix will be shown on ESPN2 on Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.
